I may have bipolar disorder, but it does not define me. I want to be able to say, for the rest of whatever time I have left, that I beat bipolar disorder. That I was an inspiration to others still fighting. And that I lived my best life.
This is my story. This is my Brave.
This Is My Brave, Inc.
In 2013, I launched the concept for a mental health storytelling show on Kickstarter. We were successfully funded in 31 days, raising over $10,000 and in 2014 we became a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a mission to end the stigma surrounding mental illness through creative personal storytelling.
“The shows that are part of "This Is My Brave" are the cornerstone in the mental health, lived experience, wellness movement. The celebration and triumph and courage it takes to show up, get up and reveal is healing on all levels. These are the stories of the people who have not had words or a voice. Jennifer Marshall with This Is My Brave has changed that for so many people with lived experience. Each story brings hope, self-esteem and the power to change society for the better.”
